The Youth Connection is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization in Southeast Michigan connecting youth to a brighter future. We are committed to providing high-quality youth programs, advocacy and supportive services. We provide programs such as our Career Academies, Nutrition Education, Substance Abuse Prevention and our Ticket to Float Summer Kayaking Program. We connect youth, young adults and their families to resources and opportunities that enrich their lives, with special attention to those who are undeserved.
The Youth Connection’s After-School Fair is a one-day event to get kids ready to go back to school and back to after-school. It features activities and vendors that showcase after-school programs, local businesses, booths on health topics as well as giveaways. Some of the FREE items being given to students this year include backpacks, books, school supplies, shoes, bikes, helmets and so much more! FREE FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY! Lunches will be provided for youth ages 18 and under. We will also be having our Fit-N-Fun Family Clubs Olympic Games, a part of our I2D2 Nutrition Education program. Join us in representing your organization on Belle Isle on Saturday, August 17th from 12 pm until 4 pm (5K Substance Abuse Prevention Walk/Run at 11 am!)
